Colored Eggs

Ecclesiastes 3:13

That each of them may eat and drink, and find satisfaction in all their toil— this is the gift of God. 

Kyrie Ann Neves’ chicken eggs come in pastel shades of blue, green, pink and yellow: all without the help of food coloring. Neves and her mother have been operating a farm for the last two years with around 300 chickens — about a third of which are “Easter Eggers,” a name given to hens that lay colorful eggs. The “Easter Eggers” are the result of carefully crossbreeding Ameraucanas, a type of blue-egg-laying chicken, with Araucanas, a type of Chilean chicken that lays bluish-green eggs. The resulting hybrid can produce eggs in “a kaleidoscope of colors,” said Neves, with some even laying pink or yellow eggs, which are not laid by either of the original birds. The demand for her tinted eggs isn’t the only thing driving her farm. “You have to have passion in what you do, and that makes you good at what you do. It doesn’t mean that you have to be perfect. You just have to love what you do. And I love it,” Neves said.

Neves’ testimony of enjoying and loving what she does is a practical example that we can also love and enjoy our toils or labor. In everything we do, great or small, there will always be challenges along the way. It says in James 1:5, If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.

Do you enjoy your job? Do you love your daily chores? Do you find satisfaction in your tasks? Vacation packages promote needed break but can’t help you love your tasks. If you enjoy and love your task, you may have discovered the lifestyle God has designed for you. To enjoy, love and find satisfaction in our tasks is God’s gift which is less expensive and more refreshing, energizing and productive than vacation packages. It says in Hebrews 4:16, Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.

Lord Jesus, please give me wisdom to enjoy my daily tasks.
